LANCASTER – An ex-convict released from federal prison in March has been charged with 11 robberies in Lancaster, deputies said. Daryl King, 39, is believed to have robbed several businesses around Challenger Way and Avenue K between early June and mid-July, and also is being investigated in connection with other Lancaster robberies, officials said. “He’s a bad guy,” sheriff’s Lt. Donald Downton said.
